Source: I received a signed copy of the book from Booktrib to read and review for my stop on the tour.

About the book:
War on Terror veteran Eric Caine awakes in a hospital with no recollection of his arrival or the events leading up to it. “Mr. Caine, your employer has filed a missing person report on you. That was eight days ago. Since then, no one has had any idea of your whereabouts,” says Doctor Goldman after Eric gains consciousness.

Found wandering the streets of Miami speaking Arabic with no memory of the car accident that left him there, Eric is alone on a one-way road to self-destruction.

Suffering from PTSD and trying to piece the past few days together, Eric makes his way to a bar where a chance encounter begins a series of events, restoring the equilibrium in his life. When his new job relocates him to Venezuela – the land of his childhood – things take an ominous turn as a catastrophic event threatens his own stability and the stability of the country. Now Eric must escape an elite team of CIA assassins as he tries to uncover an international conspiracy in which nothing is what it seems.

All I have to say is wow! I was pleasantly surprised by the book and how much I really enjoyed it. Its fast paced and it literally sucks you in from the get go. I actually managed to read this in a day and a half and trust me when I say I had a hard time putting it down and really wanted to stay up to read it until I finished it but I couldn’t. Those are my kind of books when it sucks you in and you can’t put it down.

I have to say that I could actually see this being made as a movie because I think it would be fantastic on the big screen. Henry’s writing is perfect with just enough description to make you feel like its real.

Okay so now on with the book. The books main character is Eric Caine he is a veteren. He is young and is suffering from PTSD. He served his country as a paramedic in the war and is struggling to copy with what he has seen. This was insightful because I guess not being around that we don’t realize how our men and women feel when they come back. They have seen things that we can only dream about.

For Eric not only is have PTSD a problem for him and dealing with that but he is also suffering from having no memory of what happened before he woke up in a hospital room. He doesn’t remember the car accident. Eric is basically a time bomb waiting to go off. He is a very destructive man and people are quick to say its PTSD. Eric is basically fighting and drinking his life away.

Thankfully for Eric its being at the right place at the right time that almost saves him or was it all a huge set up? Eric walks into his local bar for a drink and starts talking to a guy and before long some frat boys walk in and a huge fight ensues. You know this won’t end good and thats right it doesn’t because Eric wakes  up in jail. Thankfully he isn’t arrested but told to get help and is handed a business card. Its the guy he was talking to at the bar before the fight.

Not to long after getting out of jail Eric calls Tony to thank him and before Eric can blink his life is changing,. Tony has hooked him up with a high paying job and is traveling for business so after being hired. The first stop on this new job is to his old home land in Venezuela to work in the office there.

Not being there very long Eric quickly realizes that something is up. He realizes he is being followed, his phone is tapped and his computer is hacked. Is this just a normal kind of thing or is there more to this then meets the eye?

This is were I have to stop because I will spoil the book. I loved the book and would highly recommend it if you like the fast paced books. Looking forward to reading future books by Henry.

Thanks again to Book Trib for allowing me to take part in this book tour.
